We had a wonderful dinner here. The service was top notch with the wait staff being friendly, accommodating, and vigilant to your needs. The food was delicious. We will definitely have dinner here again if we come back to the area.

This bistro is a little slice of heaven. The service was wonderful. The food was done to perfection. The ambiance was lovely. They have a nice wine list. The menu changes because the chef uses local, fresh products. Highly recommend and you should have reservations.

The restaurant was a little too "foo foo" for us. The presentation of the food was excellent but the main courses (haddock and salmon) were acceptable but somewhat forgettable.
